I have played a little with trapunto before but am working on my first small whole cloth project. I want to puff the living daylights outta the designs on this thing! LOL* I bought some cheapie poly high loft batting in a bag from Wal-mart for experimenting. Can you guys who do this a lot tell me, do you use poly for the whole quilt too? I was thinking, do the trapunto work on the areas I want super puffy, cut away, then layer the whole lot on top of another high loft poly hunk and quilt densly around the puffy areas to make it stand out more. Does that make sense? Is this how you do it? This is my first whole cloth/trapunto project so I would love to hear thoughts and suggestions!
